Luna Innovations Reports First Quarter 2010 Financial Results

Luna Innovations Incorporated (NASDAQ: LUNA), a company focusing on sensing, instrumentation and nanotechnology, today announced its financial results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2010.

As compared to the same quarter last year, product and license revenue increased by 29%, from $1.6 million in the first quarter of 2009 to $2.1 million in the first quarter of 2010, while total revenue decreased by 7%, from $8.5 million in the first quarter of 2009 to $7.9 million in the first quarter of 2010. The decrease in total revenue was largely the result of lower pass-through costs for subcontracts and materials under a research contract in the company’s technology development business segment. Gross profit increased from $2.7 million for the first quarter of 2009 to $2.8 million for the first quarter of 2010. The company reported a net loss attributable to common shareholders of $1.3 million, or $0.10 per common share, for the first quarter of 2010, as compared to a net loss of $40.9 million, or $3.66 per common share for the first quarter of 2009. The net loss for the first quarter of 2009 included one-time charges of $36.3 million for a litigation reserve and $1.3 million for the impairment of intangible assets, and a $0.6 million charge related to the valuation allowance provided against the company’s deferred tax asset. Adjusted EBITDA, which is earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization, excluding non-cash stock-based compensation expense, non-cash charges for impairment of intangible assets and charges related to the company’s litigation with Hansen Medical, Inc. and its Chapter 11 reorganization, improved to positive $0.5 million for the first quarter of 2010, as compared to negative $0.3 million for the first quarter of 2009. The company consummated a settlement of its litigation with Hansen and emerged from Chapter 11 reorganization in January 2010.
